Pups & Adult Dogs Day Care 

Young Dogs In Smaller Groups:
The group of dogs "below" sometimes will get divided up into smaller groups.  We have the "play areas"  so we can  keep our groups small.  We do rotate the pups around, so they make many different friends each week when staying with us.  Some pups come every day, some 2 or 3 times a week.
Dog & Pup Day Care Center:  dog day care business, dog care and boarding, dog day care, dog walking, dog play, pet sitting, dog groups, dog exercise, canine exercise, doggie daycare, dog boarding, kennel, dog training.

We have a "Great Day Care Program" for pups; keeping them out of being in a Crate for the Day while owners are at work!!
 To the Left:  "Our" Puppy Day Care Program...  The youngest group that we have, in the group today:  Pixie, Ellie, Punch, and Kya.  (Dash is hiding)

They are playing on a rock pile, put together for their yard to learn "balance", and "footing", and to peak their curiousity.  This Spring, more of a agility course will be put together for them.

They are also in a Yard that has the highest exposure.  Weather permitting we get them outdoors as often as they like.

Want your puppy to have a great start in Life?  Check out putting him/her in "a" Day Care, with a program designed for young puppies.

Many of our Pictures show "Retrievers", but we have many other breeds that are welcomed to come here also...

Some times Day Care is not just meant for the very young to come and run and play and get tired ....   Sometimes it is for the Older dogs also, so they can get needed exercise, and not be left home alone.

Our next Planned Project is going to be very exciting for our Day Care Program... starting in the Spring, we are going to "Fence" in our entire, back Field; covers several acres.  This area also includes a very large Man Made Pond with Islands.  (Update...Fencing is DONE!!)

This will be done so all of our Friendly Groups can enjoy a wonderful Daily walk/run added to compliment their exercise program with us.  This won't be exclusive to just large groups; it can be just a couple of dogs, all the way down to just one who will have the pleasure of this added fun time.

This will be for all ages; from the very young to the oldest dogs that comes here to Maranatha Farm Kennels.  For those that enjoy water, and for those that don't there is still plenty of "land" for them to enjoy their walk/run.

This pleasure will be off limits during the seasons of freezing and thawing of "ice" on the pond.  All field trips will be done "always" with supervision.

8 A Day of Pup / Doggie Day Care Here at Maranatha Farm Kennels:

We have many different age groups and will share their playtime with you in as many pictures as we can take.  Our primary set up for Pups / Dog Day Care, is to keep all our "furry friends" active during the day, and having a "good" time.  This is during "all" seasons, and weather!  

We "all" get out and play.  Some of our  larger outside pens range from 100x200, 40x70.  Most are  40x50; great sizes to do group plays... fun outdoors, during the really cold weather.  Dogs are put into larger groups and are rotated with many breaks to rest and get warm
